Mary J. Blige Hit With $3.4 Million Tax Lien
Mary J. Blige is in financial trouble once again and the amount is no small change.
According to TMZ, the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul has been hit with a $3.4 million tax lien from the IRS. This amount adds to the $900,000 she still owes to the state of New Jersey.
Apparently MJB failed to pay income taxes from 2009 to 2011. For 2009, she owes $574,907.30; for 2010, she must pay $2,203,743.53; and for 2011, the amount equals $647,604.60. Her total tax bill equals $3,426,255.43.
The “Be Without You” singer has a list of money woes to handle at the moment. Her back taxes owed to New Jersey equal $901,769.65 and she is currently being sued for reportedly defaulting on a $2.2 million bank loan.
Also, the charity that she founded alongside Steve Stoute — the Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now – is at the center of a lawsuit. TD Bank is suing the foundation for a $250,000 loan that was never repaid.
“Mary has been and is continuing to work with her new team to resolve all these issues as quickly as possible,” a rep for the singer tells TMZ.
Blige herself has yet to comment on the matter.
